    Careless misatkes on Tests

    Post by Ahmed on Tue Oct 13, 2009 5:33 pm

    The careless misatkes that I make on tests are killing me. Such as for example reading this: x+2 , as: x-2

    On my math tests they cost me 10 points!!

    I am suffering for them.

    Any advice.

    Also don't tell me to go over my test because I really have no time at all. I have to be speedy throughout the whole test or I won't finish. (I was quick and I finished in the last second)

    try just going over the symbols in a question twice before you answer, especially if they are small, - can look like x or + or even /!
